The hotel is nice clean and modern enough Staff need a proper manager to control service. No sugar. Slow clearing of tables. Close enough ro being unpleasant No bread at breakfast etc. Getting them was no problem. Staff are willing but they need a plan and someone to drive them effectively. Shame

We didn't actually stay in the hotel but had dinner in their restaurant. We visited last year and although the food was good the service was slow but oh wow what a difference this time! The food was so tasty and the service was excellent. We got our food exactly as we ordered and were asked several times if we... More

Fantastic hotel and stunning bedroom. Food was terrific both lunch and dinner. Service top notch. Our room overlooked the Lough which was lovely. The Roof Garden terrace was superb. Wish we had booked for longer.

The hotel is very stylish and quite a big busy hotel with business and leisure guests. The hotel is in a lovely location with some nice views over the lake. Beware some of the rooms on the front have a blocked view where they have built a spa on the front so you just look out over a wall. The... More

We stayed here in early August for 3 nights on a Supervalu Getaway Break. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Ive always found people from the west of Ireland, the nicest in the country. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great every morning. We dined in the bar each... More

Stayed 2 nights there. The room was spacious and clean and so was the bathroom. Coffee and tea tray was there as well as an ironing board and iron and a hair dryer. . Our room also had a balcony. The restaurant food for breakfast and especially dinner is excellent.

I've just come from the Spa at the Lough Rea Hotel, where I had a lovely hot stone massage treatment with Siobhan. I spent an hour in the thermal suite and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Spotlessly clean, efficient and friendly the spa is well worth a visit. Then lunch in the hotel, I went for a light bite with a... More

We stayed one night on route to Connemara. Good hotel, nice spacious rooms, good breakfast - lots of choice. We also had a balcony. Travelled with our six year old and he was quite happy. Wifi poor and TV channel selection basic enough. We paid €135 for b&b in August which was about the value of the place.
